So, today's prompt is:
Ten Things off your Bucket List
And it also notes: If you haven't made one, now's a good time to start!
Well, to begin with; I did not like the "bucket list" idea...you know, things to do before you "kick the bucket"! So, once I hit the "ripe old age" of 50, I created:
Now that I am 50 years old,
Things I'd like to do
And there are quite a lot on that list; but I will share 10...half that I have already done and half that I have yet to do!!
1. See a Broadway show in Chicago or New York.
See Anne Murray in concert; and the bonus of that concert was also seeing her daughter who joined her!
Sing Handel's "Messiah" with a large choir. A few years ago I had the opportunity with our church's choir to sing with a local community college's choir during the holidays...I think I can also cross off: Sing with a choir in a big program; because singing the "Messiah" ticks off both!
The Chancel Choir
at Riverside Ave. Christian Church
4. Visit the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France (again) ... we were there when I was younger, about 6ish!
Go on a cruise; any cruise would be great, but a scrapbooking cruise would be great! So far I have been on four "regular" cruises and they were far from "regular"!
Our 25th Anniversary Cruise
6. Search for lighthouses, covered bridges, beautiful waterfalls and botanical gardens all around the U.S. This one could be marked as partially complete as we have seen quite a lot of these amazing things!
Ponce Inlet near Daytona Beach, FL
Go to Disney World. My very first trip to Disney was in 2003 when my oldest grandson turned four years old...that was my first and only, at least so far! It was so exciting to see Disney for my first time; but even more exciting watching my grandson and his excitement!
Shayne and MeMaw
8. Spend a week in the mountains beside a cool river or stream...this sounds so quiet and peaceful! I wonder if we could leave all phones, laptops, etc. at home?!
9. Visit Australia ... looks like such a beautiful place to see!
Retire at an age young enough to enjoy family and friends. It may have been due to disability, but I am retired and loving my flexible life-style!
And, I am adding one more that will never be finished:
Make a huge dent in scrapbooking all of my photos! This is a never-ending project since I will continue taking photos...and as long as there are memories to be made, there will be photos to scrapbook!
And there you have my "bucket list"! I need to get busy fulfilling those that have not been completed!
